2020 Tesla Model Y vs. Its Competition

Teaser for Tesla Model Y electric SUV due for reveal in 2019
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Electric-car camps are divided among: cars that are here, and cars that aren't.

Tesla's partially responsible for the division: the wait for the Model 3 was long and sometimes tedious.

The Model Y starts the clock all over again for the automaker—at least the Model 3 is here and available.

So is the Hyundai Kona EV, which may tempt buyers with a mainstream badge from an established automaker.

The Jaguar I-Pace is also available nationwide, although its more expensive and its real-world range is an open question.

The Audi e-tron is due closer to summer and ushers the luxury automaker into the EV market.

Same for the Mercedes-Benz EQC crossover, which is due later this year and should be a good look at what electric crossovers can be.
